Beginning this coming Sunday, you can legally be served an alcoholic beverage beginning at 10 a.m., at any bar or restaurant in St. Albans. While that extra three hours might not seem like a huge deal, local business owners believe it may be the key to keeping customers in St. Albans while spending their money.
“We’re hoping that the brunch bill will bring St. Albans people to St. Albans,” said local business owner Leesa Wheeler.
Wheeler and her husband own and operate Drummy’s Bar and Grill on Main St.
“Before we purchased the business we would go around to other places in Charleston and we’d find there’d be a dozen or more of people from our area there,” added Wheeler.
Mayor Scott James told 13 News that the bill is a welcomed change at the perfect time.
“Its just in time for football season,” the mayor said. “You couldn’t ask for better timing for these businesses.”
